The Power of Giving
You can help make poverty #UNIGNORABLE
We’re making the power of a dollar go further in the fight against poverty on GivingTuesday, December 3. Will you join us?
Nearly 3 million Canadians struggle daily just to meet their basic needs. These are people in our communities who are often one crisis away from financial disaster from which they can’t recover.
But on GivingTuesday you can help restore hope and possibility to their lives. On this day, you can join millions of people across the globe as they come together in a movement of generosity to support causes in their communities. Through the force of collective giving, every individual act of volunteerism or donation to United Way is amplified by the sheer number of people who participate on this global day of giving.
Established in 2012 as a celebratory kickoff to the holiday giving season, GivingTuesday happens on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday and has become a worldwide philanthropic event. In 2018, millions of Canadians joined 6,500 charities and businesses to raise more than $15 million on GivingTuesday. And United Way stands ready to keep the momentum going this year to help people move from poverty to possibility, in Canada, and around the world.
Together we can tackle #UNIGNORABLE issues in our communities and change lives. Last year alone, United Way Halton & Hamilton helped over 200,000 people.
With every dollar donated on GivingTuesday, we know we can do more. Our goal is to help meet the basic needs of our community’s most vulnerable people, giving every person the opportunity to realize a better future.
Won’t you join the world on GivingTuesday, December 3, to help support more possibilities for more people? If you’ve never been a part of GivingTuesday, let this be your year to use the power of a dollar to provide life-changing financial stability.
